Picture Filled Post

Hello Everyone! Happy Saturday! This will be another quickie post today, just to show off my pictures from my "So You Think You Can Dance" show the other night. I took like 120 photos and these were the best of them. First a pic of my friends, Tracy and Jenny. :)

Opening number.

The dancers put on the entire show, announcing each others performances.

The final 4 performance.

My favourite dance couple.

Group performance before intermission.

One of the best shots I got.

First group performance after intermission, I took a few of these.

Another great photo of the group.

Nico.....yes Nico, my favourite dancer, and Canada's. Plus Allie. She is my girl, since ballet is near and dear to my heart, and she is a ballerina! Props to her!

Katelyn and Issac jazzin' it up!

Natalie and Nico.

Lisa and Vincent.

Natalie's solo. They all did solos but they were short and difficult to get photos of.

Allie and Danny another favourite couple together.

Miles and Nico's number.

Allie and Issac, bustin a move in hip hop, sassy!

My absolute favouite routine. The mirror number with Lisa and Miles. Just breathtaking. They put soooooo much emotion into it. It was fab!

Natalie and Vincent.

My second favourite number of the season with Nico and Arasay. Nico plays a black angel, it is also full of emotion.

It was a great show and I'm so happy I got to go! :)

Fallin' Off the Face of the Earth?

You'd think so! Still having computer issues. GRRR! Can't believe how much I rely on it. I shouldn't say computer issues either as much as internet issues. I can only stay connected for so long and then it cuts out on me. Every 10, 15 minutes or less! Can't get much done and what I do get done takes forever and a day. That is making my new business venture very difficult to say the least.

I took some time to change up my blog today, The Cutest Blog on the Block has some fresh new designs for spring. This one is called Too Darn Cute, and I think it is just that! It reminds me of Pink Paislees Spring Fling release from last year, so it makes me happy. Speaking of blogs, I was reading a thread over at CMK on blog banners and backgrounds and Daniela mentioned this great new website called House of 3 by 3 very talented scrapbookers Heidi Swapp, Rhonna Farrer and Janet Hopkins. You should check it out! My hope is to use something from them for my new blog, that I'm working on for my new venture ;)

Lastly, I wanted to share my excitment. I'm going to London tonight to go see "So You Think You Can Dance Canada" at the John Labatt Centre. I'm going with two of my dancing buddies Tracy and Jenni! It is going to be so much fun. Can't wait to see Mr. hottie himself and favourite dancer Nico! Hopefully, are seats will be close enough to get some good photos so I can post them. Oh and just in case Mother Nature is listening, thank you for not sending a storm today so we can get to and from London safely. :)

I Was Tagged...

by my friend Juliana.

Here's how you play...Go to your Picture Folder on your computer or wherever you store your pictures.

1. Pick the 6th Folder, then select the the 6th picture in that folder.

2. Post that picture on your blog and the story that goes along with the picture.

3. Tag 6 other people that you know or don’t know to do the same thing and leave a comment on their blog or an e-mail letting them know you chose them.

Now because I'm having to post from work (because of my computer/internet issues at home) I have limited photos here. But nevertheless I think this is so fun.

This is a picture of Elliott in front of our house, this past fall the day we carved our pumpkins. Isn't he such a poser? LOL I've trained him pretty good! :)

So I'm going to tag... Alison, Daniela, Danielle, Elizabeth, Megan and Renee.

Just a quickie fun one today. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Wish me luck I'll be having computer withdrawals....maybe a good opportunity to get scrappin'! :)

New Do and other Exciting News!

So this past weekend (I know if is almost Friday!) I got a manicure, a massage and my hair cut and had my low lights done. Boy does that look better! A girl, just has to do what a girls gotta do sometimes! (giggle) :)
I'm very busily working on my new venture and hope to share really soon! Promise not to keep you waiting too much longer :) That is if I don't come down too sick! I'm feeling a little under the weather today and I don't know if I'm getting something or just a little run down because of all this stuff going on. My fingers are crossed as I don't have time to be sick! I have a class to teach at Crop Til You Drop this weekend and I don't want to miss that. We will be doing those cute little Let it Snow blocks that I did at the end of last year. As for my other exciting news I have an opportunity to upgrade my camera. While I was at an event this weekend an acquaintance made note that I was using a Canon S1 IS. He has the Canon S5 IS. He only bought it just over a year ago and it came out in the summer of 2007. He is looking to upgrade it already as he has his eye on something else. He is willing to sell it to me with a filter (which I do not currently have) for $180. I do not need a new camera, but with techology improvements and additional new features, who could pass that deal up? I'm quite excited. Mind you I have to figure out how to come up with the $180 because of Ken being underemployed right now (only working PT rather than FT) I can't justify taking that money out of the budget. So I have to be creative. I'm hoping between my class on Saturday and the sale of a few things around the house and some scrappy stuff on facebook I can swing it. Wish me luck! :) One more note, I'm posting from work right now as we do not have internet at home at all right now. We have been having trouble with it for over a month and things just keep getting worse not better. Now I'm going to be taking my computer in to be looked at to see if there are any problems there. Please pray that it isn't anything expensive. That is the last thing we need right now.

My Dad's Wedding Album

As I had hoped I have been able to upload all the photos that I took from the mini 9x6 album that I have made from my dad's wedding. I have only 5 double page layouts left and the front and back cover of the album to complete it. I used all MME papers and embellies, oh and lots of rub ons from Creative Imaginations, they are so pretty! Please don't mind some of the crappy photos, I try, really I do. Some I couldn't be bother to take again, sorry! The girls in the wedding party are my step-sisters and myself. My husband was the photographer through the ceremony and I was after the ceremony (except when I was in the photos, but I did all the arranging) Braydn was the usher and Elliott the ring bearer. Then of course the handsome groom! My daddy! I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks for looking. Happy Thursday!
